It’s easy to rest on the expertise acquired in over 30 years of design for K-12.  We’ve completed over $800 million in Capital Projects for schools and along the way we’ve learned a thing or two. 

However, we believe experience alone isn’t enough to add real value to our clients. Just as our industry and business has evolved, so has education.  The science of learning has advanced, and so too must our classrooms.

In Session is an awareness that for us, school is always in session. We continue to seek opportunities to learn from experts in pedagogy, benchmark projects from across the country, and explore new material and technology applications.  We spend time researching the questions and issues facing our clients and share what we learn here with you.

municipal projects

IN office


At LaBella, one of our four core values focuses on the stewardship of resources. It’s a philosophy of our firm, and we know it’s shared by the many public officials who trust us with their community’s assets.  

The responsibilities of the office you hold require stewardship of the public’s finances, safety, education, and infrastructure. The office requires difficult decisions, public scrutiny, and unimaginable foresight.  Whether elected or appointed, public officials are the trustees of our communities.

Nonetheless, the office you hold is only daunting if you’re in it alone.  In Office is our commitment to be your partner in stewardship.  Bringing LaBella’s team of experts into your office, this semi-annual publication will present our experience, our expertise, and our forecasting on the topics and trends that affect municipal projects.

LaBella’s stewards come in many forms: planners, environmental scientists, civil engineers, architects, interior designers, and many other professionals that treat your resources as our own.  Let us know if there’s a topic we can explore for you by contacting us at inoffice@labellapc.com.
